Dependiing of course upon the strength of any burst or bursts.

Are we gonna die again?

MAJOR FLARE WARNING: Sunspot AR2860 is big, angry, and it’s directly facing Earth. The active region just unleashed a significant M4.7-class solar flare (Aug. 28 @ 0611 UT), probably hurling a CME toward Earth: movie. If current trends continue, a major X-flare could be in the offing, so stay tuned.
A big enough solar flare, especially if the magnetic polarity is in the southward direction can cause overloads in power systems
A flare in March 1989 blacked out Quebec for number of hours overloading the lines
Just finished watching “ knowing “ with Nicolas cage last night.
Manmade sunspots. Only the Green New Deal can save us.
I fear that Joe Biden has lost the Mandate of Heaven.
I thought we had a giant asteroid coming to get us.

Mayhaps I will get a chance to try 10 meters on my new FT-891 ham rig I got for the car... or maybe 6 meters could open...naw, never happen.. :-)
oh yeah .... and get jabbed.
Will we have time to kiss ourselves goodbye?
The M class flare listed at spaceweather.com will mess with HAM radios and light up the night sky at higher latitudes. M class are medium.
*IF* the sun points an X8 or higher at the earth, then it’s time to electrically hunker down and have your 30 day preps checked. Not a population killer, but X8-10 (logarithmic scale) can affect the grid.
It’s NOT like a nuclear EMP that fries digital gizmos. You have plenty of warning. When the time comes, open the main breaker between you and the grid and if you feel compelled, unplug sensitive electronics in your home.
Bands were dead this morning, now I am seeing a lot of signals. Should be great Europe DX tonight.
Well, that too. It seems as if all of nature has turned against us. If only we'd all vaccinate so we don't die deader.
Are we gonna die again?
Doubtful. Just more fear porn. Yesterday it was an asteroid and today it’s a solar flare. Tomorrow it could be an alien invasion./s
